DVDCommander Pro is a program for keeping track of your cd and
dvd collection. It includes the ability to track your disk by category and has a
separate tab for borrowed disks so you don't forget where that copy of your
favorite game came from.
After a disk has been loaded in to a category you can see all the files that are
on the disk and the size of the files with a couple mouse clicks even if the
disk is no longer in your drive. After I ejected the DVD which I told it to
record the information for I encountered a bug where the program kept trying to
check for a disk even though I had navigated away from the screen where I had
recorded the data for the disk.
The program kept telling me 'There is no disk in drive E:'. The fact that it
wanted to track that disk, or something else(I don't think the program cared
what it was given to track it just wanted something more!) was amusing but
repeatedly clicking 'cancel' soon got old and I had to exit the program entirely
to get the error to stop.
The company website does not have a FAQ, but does have a support contact form so
customer service might be able to help you with a patch or something, but
shouldn't software work right away without a fix?
In short, DVDCommander Pro seems like a nice idea but the bugs scared me off
after only a couple minutes of using the program. If your looking for a program
to track your music or software collection, you'll probably want to keep
